Environmental Chemistry of Silver

Significant strides have been made during the past decade in understanding not only the behavior of silver but metal speciation in general. In light of these advances, many past conclusions about metal behavior and toxicity, as well as laboratory toxicological practices, now need to be reexamined by the regulatory and research communities.This book presents syntheses from the Argentum Conference on the progress of silver research in terms of its environmental chemistry, effects on biota, biological processes, risk analyses, and current regulatory practices, addressing the additional challenges that remain before we can fully understand the environmental chemistry, toxicology, and behavior of silver.
